TUSCALOOSA, Alabama — Since 2008, Alabama has piled up a trophy case full of Associated Press All-America awards and then some.

The Associated Press picks the best All-America team, in our opinion. So it means something that Alabama players have landed on AP lists so often since 2008. Nick Saban‘s record in the past five seasons includes 17 first-team AP All-America selections, six on second team and five on third team.

Two players have earned three All-America selections in that period, including safety Mark Barron, who was third team in 2009, second team in 2010 and first team in 2011. Offensive lineman Barrett Jones made third team as a guard in 2010, first team as a tackle in 2011 and first team as a center in 2012.
